New issue by Spowmtom on void-packages repository

https://github.com/void-linux/void-packages/issues/15911

Description:
### System

* xuname:  
  Void 5.3.7_1 x86_64 GenuineIntel uptodate rFF
* package:  
  emacs-gtk2-26.3_1
  emacs-gtk3-26.3_1

### Expected behavior
When launching Emacs GTK with the command `emacs`, I expect the program to open in a new window and to work like Emacs should. 

### Actual behavior
When launching Emacs GTK with the command `emacs`, it freezes up my whole X session. i am unable to start, pause, resume, kill or even use anything. I can move my mouse though, but I've heard that some people can't. I can't kill my window manager (i3) or startx from a new TTY, I need 
to kill emacs from a new TTY. 
Emacs does work in terminal mode with `emacs -nw`.

### Steps to reproduce the behavior

1. Get my exact version of Void Linux
2. Install emacs-gtk2-26.3_1 or emacs-gtk3-26.3_1 with the XBPS package manager
3. Launch Emacs

Thank you for your time and hard work. ❤️

Comment:
I can't reproduce this with LxQT and openbox so it sounds like it is either an issue specific to the window manager or possibly arises with a specific graphics driver. Could you please test with another WM and specify which GPU and graphics driver you are using?

I have the same issue with both bspwm and dwm. I did replace my `emacs-gtk3` with `emacs-x11` and had no issue since, I thought it was my config which was broken.

I'm using `x86-video-intel`

`emacs-x11` works for me too.

I wish that the void team would fix this issue though.

Comment:
This problem happened to me too.
But it was a new clean install of void Linux I've discovered that problem happens just after I've installed Thumar file manager.
Before Thunar I can just run emacs and it start immediately, after installing Thunar the whole system hung.

Comment:
> Use `dbus-launch emacs`.

I've found that the problem is that emacs-gtk require dbus and if you use a wm instead of dm you should launch your wm of choice with `dbus-launch wm` like `dbus-launch i3` or  `dbus-launch awesome` etc. in this way all other apps works like expected like Thunar or Pacmfm etc.

So that the issue is due to dubs-launch being in PATH?

no it's just a configuration error when someone use a window manager instead of desktop environment.
I'm using awesome wm and I've solved all my problem just changing `awesome.desktop` to

```

Comment=Highly configurable framework window manager (dbus)
Exec=dbus-launch awesome

This is weird anyway. The emacs guys should take a look at this issue and fix it. It's really weird.

So maybe the right thing to do is to add some example to documentation
